ASIAN MARINATED SALMON
Grilling over indirect heat allows the fish to stay moist and take on a subtle smokiness.
Prep Time: 40 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
½ cup rice vinegar
½ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon freshly ground
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 3½-pound salmon filet, skinned
¼ cup chopped green onions
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
Combine vinegar and next 6 ingredients in a large Ziploc bag; seal. Shake to combine. Add fish; seal. Freeze, or if using same day, marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once.
If fish is frozen, remove from freezer to thaw. Preheat grill to high heat. Spray with cooking spray. Remove salmon from marinade and place on grill. Lower grill temperature to medium. Cook 5 minutes on one side, carefully lift, spray grill again with cooking spray, and turn filet over. Fish should flake easily when done. Garnish with chopped green onions and toasted sesame seeds.
